Groundtruther have an interesting concept: electric/acoustic drummer Bobby Previte and eight-string guitar genius Charlie Hunter team up with an invited third member for albums of live improvisation. The first album, Latitude, was basically a continuation of Come In Red Dog, This Is Tango Leader (Hunter and Previte's first collaboration), with Greg Osby on sax adding an additional melodic element. For Longitude, DJ Logic is the invited guest, and the roles shift considerably. Since Logic has a wider sound palette than Osby does, Previte moves away from the electronic drums and triggered samples of earlier releases toward a more standard kit as Logic takes control of the "odd sounds." Hunter assumes more of a lead role without a melodic foil and often applies thick distortion. In fact, you've never heard so much distortion coming out of Hunter's rig, and it sounds fantastic.

Drake). Following a little help from Keepsie on Drums.
Listening to their debut release of Every Night Something Happens, it feels like it was recorded during the sessions for Knifeworld’s Bottled Out of Eden, but also making sure that the styles between the Syd Barrett-era of Pink Floyd, the Rock In Opposition Movement, and bits of psychedelia, flowing very well into the sound and styles of Lost Crowns’ music.

Guitarist Deborah Coleman plays blues informed by classic rock, with a deft, melodic hand and a deep, throaty voice that ranges from sobbing sorrow to a tough growl. This 2007 release doesn't stray far from her usual MO, but offers the same high-quality playing and singing. Highlights include album-closer "Wagon Wheel," a frisky number with a Western swing bounce.

For Steve Hackett, his 26th studio album (a remarkable statistic of itself) is far more than merely a collection of quality tracks. It goes a lot deeper than this. “I love experimenting with sounds and ethnic instruments, and thereby taking my ideas into other musical territories, to go where I have not artistically been before. This is essentially British music but it's being developed in foreign soil, as it were.” 'At The Edge Of Light' represents the master guitarist's commitment and passion for a global perspective on the music he writes and performs. “It feels here like I have finally connected properly to world music,” he explains. “In the past there have been a few tracks where I have skirted around that type of genre. But now, it's the entire album that fits into this style.”

WEB FLAC (tracks) - 220 MB | Tracks: 13 | 60:06 min
Style: Classical | Label: MSR Classics

This collection of works for flute and piano is especially meaningful to me. First, there is a connection to nature with most of the works (all, depending on how you look at it). To me nature is a place of wonder, solace, refuge, and adventure. Beyond this connection, all of these works are evocative of a particular time or place, all with different spiritual undertones. The first piece on this album, by Fikret Amirov, is a charmingly unique work based on folk melodies from Azerbaijan. The second work, the Chaminade, is a beautiful little gem, a transcription by Trevor Wye of a lyrically dramatic piece originally for piano. The Karg-Elert is a bit better known within the flute canon, but is a rather unusual and colorful work, each movement having a programmatic, nostalgic, or spiritual influence.

This isn't just a 2-CD set of some unbelievable guitar work from a long-esteemed player of truly formidable skill but rather a treasury that proves beyond doubt that Melvin Taylor needs to be placed within the museum of the guitar greats: Wes Montgomery, George Benson, Chet Atkins, Frank Zappa, Earl Klugh, Jim Hall, Leo Kottke, Robert Fripp, Grant Green, Pat Metheny…all of 'em, regardless of style and genre. And he not only plays all the many layers of various guitars here but bass as well in a nominally foursome format.

Moppa Elliott has always been a maverick musician, poking fun at the established order. Bassist, composer, label-owner, educator, and self confessed rabble-rouser, he is leader of one of America's strangest and most inventive bands – Mostly Other People do the Killing (MOPDTK). Once described as America's funniest jazz band, they are known for their quirky tunes, even quirkier artwork and their pastiche albums. I've been a fan for a long time.

This is an enchanting CD, every item a sheer delight. Margaret Leng Tan worked with Cage in the last decade of his life and her earlier recordings (1/92; 7/95) show a special sympathy for the magical world of Cage's keyboard music. The second of her New Albion CDs included the piano solo version of The Seasons, and Cage was honest enough to admit to her that he had help from Virgil Thomson and Lou Harrison in making the orchestral version recorded here. The result is recognisably Cage at his most poetic, evoking each of the four seasons in lovely changing colours. There are two realisations of one of the last of what are called Cage's 'Number Pieces', Seventy-Four, written specially for the American Composers Orchestra a few months before his death in 1992. Several hearings have confirmed for me that this seamless garment of sustained sound in two overlapping parts is an immensely moving document from a unique human being at the very end of his life.

Electronic, Dub Techno, Ambient, Tribal | Label: Silent Season

The Amsterdam-based duo Wanderwelle return to Silent Season with their second album. Gathering of the Ancient Spirits is inspired by the last years of the life of Paul Gauguin, which he spent on the islands of French Polynesia. The album tells the alternative history of his search for a land that is untouched by modern society and whose inhabitants were still dependent on the gifts of nature and connected to their ancestors. During his stay, the painter encounters forgotten rituals and the primordial beings which haunt the islands since the dawn of time. In 2018, it’s exactly 115 years ago that Paul Gauguin passed away. This album is an ode to one of the greatest artists that ever lived.

"Labor of love" is the inevitable phrase to describe this album on which composer/conductor/arrangers Quincy Jones and Sammy Nestico, both of whom wrote for Count Basie and His Orchestra, assemble a top-flight big band to perform some of their vintage charts. Despite the use of the bandleader's name in the title and the pictures of him with the two principals on the front and back of the album, the music is more "beyond" than "Basie." It is true that both Jones and Nestico are steeped in the Basie band's light, rhythmic approach to playing and their music is imbued with that style. But both are better understood as graduates of the Basie school than true adherents, people who have spent the better parts of their careers applying their knowledge of swing to other endeavors, notably film scores…
